Hello!!
Just watched a show on nyctv about St. John the divine church. although I had heard the name I have never seen it. It looks amazing and beautiful and I would love to go look at it
I am not familiar with that location Amsterdam and 112th . So as soon as the weather warms up I would to visit it and the area for the day
Is there anything else to do in that area and Are there some casual restaurants anyone could recommend
I thank you in advance for any suggestions and advice you can offer

Columbia University is right there. The Hungarian Pastry shop is a nice stop.

My husband loves the Hungarian Pastry Shop and the Italian Restaurant a door or two down. I can't think of the name.

I too recommend the Hungarian pastry shop; the coffee is not very good but the pastries are delicious. Years ago, peacocks lived on the Cathedral grounds but I dont know if they still do. It is a lovely area; you will enjoy walking around. Columbia U., Riverside Church and Union Theological Seminary are all within walking distance. You may also want to go to Tom's Restaurant where Seinfeld and buddies hung out.

Terrific place a little further up, I think, called Pisticci.

There was a period when I was visiting an elderly friend at a nursing home, and I started walking over west to RSD, to look at all the gorgeous residential buildings that I never new existed.

Yeah, Tom's Diner, right up the street (112th) that faces SJ-the-D. Drab, grubby food, and drab, grubby service, but you can fantasize hanging with Elaine and George, etc., even though they never actually filmed inside the place (Monk's was some TV-created set), but you'll surely recognize the red-lighted RESTAURANT sign on the exterior.
For me, though, Tom's Diner was a song by a Barnard alumna named Suzanne Vega. There was also a cool rap version of the song, way back when.

But you can't go wrong with V&T Italian, right across the avenue from SJ, next to the Hungarian. A sit-down place, not dealing out slices. Real authentic -- which is getting to be a frighteningly scarce thing on this island of ours these days.
